    Where are you riding this weekend ? 06/30-07/01

    On Sunday, I'll more than likely head down from Fontana to Claremont, up MIlls, to Baldy, not sure if I'm heading up to the village from there or coming down Euclid. Early start again!

    No room for either.
    There are mtb rentals down there, and I'm bringing my helmet, seat, pedals & shoes, but as hot as it is I'll probably spend most of the week surfing with my nephew and kayaking.
    Never been down there, and the closest I've ever been to such a place was Catalina last year. Will take plenty of pics.

    Change of plans for me, looks like I will be riding SART from Upland and then follow the 605 river trail back, 125 miles roughly.

    Nah, those were from my Catalina trip last year. Only 80 miles that day, but also 11,000+ feet of climbing, some spectacular scenery, and a few of Glenn Ford's leftover bison...

    That pic was simply one that came up on Google during my research. I'm afraid they'll only have junky rentals down there (like Catalina has), but we'll see.

    Catalina is definitely worth the boat ride. I think it was either 8 or $12 to take your bike on the Ferry over there, and you have to buy some $35 annual Conservancy Pass (the little green card on my mtb's handlebars).
    I stayed at the Hermosa Inn and they let me lock up my bike in their yard. It's a funky old motel with shared restrooms, creaky floors & stairs, but it was cool. It's a pretty sharp climb out of Avalon, but once you get up there, there are places where you straddle the Island like a colossal horse, with ocean on both sides.
    You're pretty much restricted to the fireroads on Catalina, but some of the scenery is stellar. Definitely worth checking out if you have a mountainbike.

    Nothing like a swim & rinsing off in outdoor showers after a long, sweaty ride, and then meeting drunk girls on the ferry on the way back to the mainland.

    That's quite a ride. Pretty flat for a mountain goat like you though!

    Probably will try the Riverside Citrus Classic route again. Last time 3 flats with a gash on tire made me give up mid ride... hopefully, it will be smoother this time. (All depends on how recovered I am on the day though... been riding 40+ miles for last 3 days straight with lot of intervals in between.

    Nothing special, to PCH and back via Mulholland and Yerba. Might try out Yellow Hill Road if I have the legs(15.1% for 1 mile).

    If you stay at the Sandpiper Inn, say hello to Greg Miller, cyclist and owner of the Inn. He was on the U.S. cycling team the year of the Boycott 1980 Moscow games.

    Lesper, are you taking PCH to SGRT? If yes, what way to go SGRT to SART? Foothill? I think Genaro asked this as well once.

    I do not know I am just following a group. Pain Freak is one of the riders. I will let you know after I complete it.

    Somewhere, somehow, sometime.....either gonna blow off the ride and surf (naw...did that Monday and Tuesday and it's still flat) or ride and sail (maybe head up to VTA for a few hours) or just sleep in and do nothing!

    http://ridewithgps.com/routes/1374372 It's not Baldy, but for a Clyde like me, it's a big hill.
    As much as you paid for that Beemer [Mercedies, Audi, Escalade], I'm surprised it didn't come equipped with turn signals.

    My club rode the hills of San Marcos. I swear the ride leader knows every single hill in North San Diego County and he manages to incorporated as many of them as possible into the ride.

    On Friday I did a loop of Oceanside/Bonsall/Valley Center/San Marcos/Carlsbad. A buddy told me he saw me riding west on the Oceanside bike trail so I may have done it differently.

    Sunday rode Oceanside/San Marcos/Rancho Santa Fe/Escondido/San Marcos/Oceanside. We planned on coming back to San Marcos through Elfin Forest & do the Twin Oaks climb but the road was closed.

    Change of plans for me last minute. Rode from Green River via Sart to PCH and hung a right to Long Beach. Hung out with my family while my wife and friends ran 5 and 10 K's and then rode back the same way.
